SOURCE: How can I put car in neutral if battery is dead?

What you have is a safety switch, wich is why when the car is running you need to step on the brake to release the shifter from park. the switch is electric, and therefore isn't working because your battery is dead. Now, for the good news. Next to your shifter there should be a little plug, or a slot about the size of your door lock key hole. Insert your key into the slot, press down lightly, and then you can take the car out of park. That is called your "shift lock release"
Good luck!

1997 bmw 528i will not even try to turn over after battery replacement. Acts like neutral safety switch...everything works, but engine will not crank and there is no noise when key is turned and no...


No, but did you clean the terminals and the contacts before you put it together? Sometimes there will be enough juice to light up the dash but not enough to crank the starter, the starter draws 13+ volts, did you check the battery? Check the specific gravity? All that? Check the voltage at the terminals and then check the voltage at the wires away from the terminals. Unless you hit a raccoon the night before the battery went it, you shouldn't have upset the transmissions neutral safety switch. I have seen new batteries come in dead, and I think the problem might be dirt. One more thing, there is a fusible link on the hot lead from the battery, It might have blown while putting in the new battery, check it out. Hope this helps.

98 bmw 740i wont start


I would first check the condition of the battery. If the battery is okay, that is it puts out enough current to operate the starter. I would then check for a short. The battery would be dead in a couple of hours only if there is a short or another load on the battery.
